Comments about Eichmann in Jerusalem:

Arendt's text is definitely worth a read. It presents an interesting perspective that has been much maligned and misinterpreted. Although Arendt could have approached certain issues in a more sensitive manner her text is insightful and looks closely at what is a difficult period in history to understand.
